Finally, Many movies and films were inspired by the movie series and the books by Edgar Allen Poe. The Tales of Terror is most known as one of the first movies that incorporated a mixture of horror and comedy (99) into the movies. Roger Corman had directed and created many movies and television shows already (mostly horror), but wanted to add something new to some of his movies. For example, that year he created another movie called the Premature Burial, and according to rottentomatoes.com, much of this movie was also greatly based on the dramatic stories and books of Mr. Poe. The genres of this movie was horror, drama, and mystery (158).
The book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone differs from the movie Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in many ways. Most of these differences include characters and scenes. The two ways to discover this Harry Potter adventure are to either read the book or watch the movie. In fact, a person would want to read the book if they wanted the entire perception of the story and all of the information inside; whereas, a person would want to watch the movie if they wanted a rough sketch of the story. The two have dissimilarities but the person choosing to read the book or watch the movie is in charge of what they want to have.
There were many similarities and differences between book and the movie. I usually find movie better, but for this I like the book better because it was some events that make much more interesting which was not included in the movie. I didn’t liked watching the movie because we watched after we read a book. Well watching a movie, I knew what is going to happened next which makes it less interesting to watched. I may have choose movie because I can see physically without reading out and imagining.
A movie, even when it's good, doesn't often convey the feeling of the book it's based on. But in this case screenwriter Horton Foote treated the Harper Lee novel - about a Depression-era Alabama lawyer and his two children - with love and respect, and the director successfully evoked the novel's sense of childhood mystery and tenderness." (Dashiell) The same characters were the same heroes and the same characters were killed so the movie still resembles the book yet the directors choose to change some ideas around causing a different perspective while still maintaining the same morals. Some minor differences between the movie and the book include the book being much more descriptive and easier to understand where as the movie is harder to understand due to the fact that there isn't any narration. The book also has more suspense while the movie moves too fast and cuts out scenes.
Making books into movies has always been an enormous task for authors and directors. You want the movie to be as much like the book as possible but there are certain things that you can’t transfer from the book onto screen. The Hobbit is one of those rare instances where the book and the movie are quite similar, except for a few Hollywood embellishments to lead into the Lord of the Rings trilogy and to heighten the dramatic impact. Both the movie follows the proper story events and battles in chronological order, has the actors accurately cast, and portrays the scenery and landscape wonderfully. The Hobbit book starts out with Bilbo Baggins’s simple life in Bagend, the movie starts out the same way with just a little backstory about Erebor and the Lonely Mountain to catch everybody up.
However, the film is dependent on the directors vision and audience has little say on how the story is portrayed. I would rather read novels than watch films because novels provide better story experiences for their audiences through its increased creative freedom through imagination, lack of time limits, increased exposure, and the social experience it provides. I will be using two novels turned films for my analysis of this topic. I will be using examples from Golding's The Lord of the Flies and Morr... ... middle of paper ... ...lling stories than films. Novels are better than films because they give their audience complete creative control over how they visualize the story.
The Hollywood Production Code Administration’s job was to make sure that every movie produced was appropriate for all ages and ethnic backgrounds. The PCA was harsh to many writers and producers. If they did not give a movie their seal of approval the movie would most likely not be shown in theaters; and even if it were, the movie would most likely not become very popular. The Seven Year Itch ran into trouble because the script was adapted from a play. Plays were allowed to be more risqué than movies during the time and were often not approved for movie production.
After reading the book To Kill a Mockingbird and watching the movie. I’ve seen a lot of differences and similarities while comparing the book and the movie. The movie doesn’t put every scene that was in the book, it only puts the main points that were in the novel. They didn’t use Scout’s point of view throughout the whole film which didn’t give her perspective of all the events that were occurring. The whole movie was just showing all the events that happened.
I’ve heard many positive review about this book and the movie too! Therefore, these are the reasons of why I choose The Hunger Games. The basic summary of The Hunger Games starts with Katniss, the main character, to go hunt with Gale, her friend. Every year the annual Hunger Games is held where two people from each district will fight for their life in the arena until there is only one person left alive. Katniss’s little sister, Prim is chosen, but not until Katniss volunteers to take her place and fight in the Hunger Games.
I cannot say that I prefer the novel over the movie. The novel has so much more story that was not placed into the film. I watched them movie before reading the book so I already had a preconceived idea of the characters. The novel leaves so much more to the imagination and really paints the dark picture of what it must have been like for people during this era in the South during the Civil War. The movie does a fantastic job as well but I don’t think it is as in depth, which is expected because of the length of the novel.
